Modern Introductory Mechanics
by Walter Wilcox
Publisher: Bookboon 1999
Number of pages: 309
This is a two semester introductory classical mechanics text. The coverage of material includes some unusual topics in variational techniques and deterministic chaos. The treatment of relativity is more complete than usual, and the author introduces the idea of covariant and contravariant vectors and tensors.

The book emphasizes the development of general tools to support the analysis of nonlinear Hamiltonian systems. Explorations of transitions to chaos, nonlinear resonances, and resonance overlap to help the student to develop tools for understanding.
